Pasta with smoked salmon

This is a recipe that I got from my my mummy. I love pasta and especially pasta with creamy white sauces. I was a little doubtful (as I suspect you are now) about using smoked salmon but it tastes amazing. Don’t be surprised that I use no salt. The smoked salmon has such a strong and salty flavor that you can be in danger of making the pasta to0 salty if you add any additional salt.

Ingredients: 1/2 lb fettuccine pasta (or just eye half a box), 2 small shallots, 2 garlic cloves, 4 oz of smoked salmon, 1 pint heavy cream,1 egg, 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

Begin by making the pasta. Into a boiling pot throw 1/2 lb of fettuccine past.Fettuccine usually takes at least 12 minutes to make.I leave them in the pot for around 10 since they will cook in the sauce for a little bit after.

While the water is boiling start working on the sauce. Chop two small shallots.

To a pan (on medium heat), add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Drop the chopped shallots. Next finely chop 2 cloves of garlic. Add them to the pan too.

Once the pasta is cooked add it to the pan. Next pour 1 pint of heavy cream into the pasta.

Stir everything together. Next slice smoked salmon into small strips.

When the cream comes to a boil add the smoked salmon strips to the pot.

Let the pasta stand for a minute before adding 1 egg.

Mix the egg well into the pasta and allow to cook for another minute. For best result eat the pasta right away.
